Andy Pettitte’s setback cost him 7-10 days

Last week we learned that Andy Pettitte had something of a setback in his rehab, but that it wouldn’t cost him any time. Those facts are no longer operative:

“We have to let the healing process take its course,’’ said Cashman, who expects to see Pettitte pitching next month in the big leagues. “He had that setback which cost him a week to 10 days, but he is in the middle of the healing process.’’

This shouldn’t be critical for the Yankees, who still have a quite comfortable lead despite their recent struggles. But they really are gonna want him back for the playoffs.
